SHREVEPORT, La. – The Ladies took advantage of timely three-point shooting and a career-high 29 points from sophomore Jasmine Morris as Centenary (4-10, 1-3 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) defeated Colorado College (2-13, 1-3 SCAC) 76-63 Friday night, January 13.

With Centenary up 7-5, triples from sophomores Savanah Doty and Erin Temple around a Colorado College layup extended the lead to 13-7 in the first quarter. However, the Tigers scored the final five points of the quarter to take an 18-16 lead after one.

However, a 12-2 run to begin the second gave Centenary the lead for good. Morris scored the first six points for the Ladies in the quarter by her lonesome with four free throws and a layup. Hall split from the line and junior Peyton Hurst hit a layup. Colorado College pulled within five thanks to a Jordan Meltzer layup, but Temple came down the court and hit a three. Centenary led 28-20 with 4:43 left in the quarter. The Ladies led 37-32 at the break.

Temple and Doty both came off the bench for 12 points on four threes. As a team, Centenary shot 9-21 (42.9 percent) from distance.

Early in the third and fourth quarters, the Tigers cut the deficit to single-digits with a three. Both times, Centenary answered with a three of their own. Christina Bowman hit a triple to begin the half for the visitors, but Morris responded by hitting her only three taken in the game.

Threes proved to be big again when Temple and Doty went back-to-back to quickly extend the Centenary lead to 54-42 with 4:22 left in the third. Colorado College hit back-to-back threes to climb within three in the fourth quarter, but Morris drove the lane and hit the shot while being fouled to give Centenary a 62-56 lead with 6:19 left.

While Colorado College shot nearly 10 percentage-points higher (48.1-38.5 percent) in the first half, Centenary countered that with a 48.3-33.3 percent edge in the second half.

Centenary led 59-50 with 8:03 left in the game, but Colorado College’s Korban Ukasick and Bowman hit back-to-back threes. However, Morris responded with a three-point play and a fastbreak hoop from senior DeiAnna Hall.

The Tigers Casey Torbet scored 15 points, while Bowman added 11.

Centenary looks to complete the sweep of the weekend when it hosts Dallas tomorrow. Tip is scheduled for 4 p.m.
